The Most Googled Beauty Questions of 2015

It’s hard to remember the days when google wasn’t used as a verb—or in existence, for that matter. Where would we be without the giant search engine in the sky that allows us to find the answer to our most pressing, secret, die-if-anyone-found-out-we-looked-them-up questions? Wandering around helpless and still tweezing our eyebrows into minuscule lines, probably. Not to mention peeking through someone’s Google search history is pretty much the equivalent of exposing their soul—there’s a reason we clear our cache every week, obviously. Thus, when Google reveals its top-searched terms at the end of each year, we pounce. What consumed our thoughts this year?
